I been here! See more in my gigography.
We've not been to the quiz at The Britannia on Horn Street for about six months now... went back this Wednesday and SMASHED IT, first place, thank you very much. See you next time?
First prize was an astounding 27, that's nearly as good as the thirteen grand plus that us up for grabs on Pointless right now. Did not seem like the pub was that full to me, was a very hot day so not heaving when we arrived, I didn't think the prize would be much but it was the best one I've seen I think.
OK, not actually barred, and nothing to do with us performing well recently, but we are not allowed to go to the quiz at The Britannia tonight; they're overbooked. It's curry night tonight, which is always very popular. We tried to book in last Wednesday but were told only we might be squeezed in. Got the call yesterday to say no, we are not squeezed in.
We are "the dimwits", and we took first place in the quiz at the Britannia again this week, by a healthy margin. The name is not smugly ironic or anything btw, worrying a bit that it seems like that, the quiz was named after Jim, known as Dim, who was in the team the first week. I only joined later...
Just called up to get a table for the weekly quiz at The Britannia, Horn Street, and they're fully booked! They have a reserve list of ten alredy. Food this week is chicken and chips which is obviously very popular.
We did the quiz at The Britannia this week, my first time though the wife has been the previous three weeks. A good fun quiz, apparently the food is very good too. Next week I'll be there early for the eats too as it is curry night.
Every Wednesday, a quiz and dinner. You need to book a table.
Having booked for six adults and two children and making is clear that one child would need a high chair and having been told that this would be fine when I made the booking. We arrived to be told that they do not have a high chair. We put the two year old child on a regular chair with cushions but there was no apology for being misinformed. Food was not good either - roast chicken arrive on the bone which several of the party refused, parsnips were raw and the stuffing was dry and unappetising. Puddings were just about okay but no one could tell us which ones contained nuts and which did not. Would not go again or recommend to anyone.
My outlaws live just a few doors along, it looks nice, we've not eaten there though.
Re-opened following refurbishment. Three traditional ales available. New restaurant, haven't tried it yet but I'll let you know.
Apparently The Brit is shut for the next three months, undergoing a monster refit and expansion, opening with a new restaurant. Looking forward to seeing it!
